Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty easy going, and I like new experiences. I spent a few
years living abroad, so I think I'm open-minded and accepting of
different quirks and lifestyles. I'm sarcastic, but I don't think
I'm a jerk about it.
I'm into movies, music, going/dining out, hiking, travel,
photography, or just hanging out. Etc.
I am laid back, curious, and snarky
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a business analyst, and I enjoy the mix of creativity and
critical thinking it (usually) requires. I don't feel particularly
defined by my job, but I feel lucky that it's satisfying to me
right now. After making several big geographical moves to further
my career, "work/life balance" is increasingly important to
I was really involved in the arts when I was growing up, and I try
to keep that up in my free time. I take pictures, study musical
instruments, keep a journal, and do whatever else I come across
that seems fun.
I had a short-but-fun entrepreneurship experience, and I'm looking
for the next one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Eating with chopsticks
. Losing house keys and
forgetting to send in rebate forms. "Staying calm." Mad libs
. Meeting new
people. Being subtle, or blunt. Drinking quickly. Procrastinating.
Finishing the WHOLE pizza (then napping). Or eating gluten-free.
Remembering to floss. Getting by without a clothes dryer. Swimming.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've gotten some eyebrow comments recently. And I miss little hairs
on my neck all the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Requiem for a Dream, Best in Show, The Irony of Fate, Be
With Me, Wet Hot American Summer, The Piano, Pride and Prejudice,
Kill Bill, Groundhog Day, Happy Go Lucky, Black Swan, and
Shows: 30 Rock
Meet the Press, Star Trek, Game of Thrones

bands. But I'd include Alison Krauss
, The Weepies
, Porcupine Tree
, Mark Ronson
, Radical Face
Food: Particular favorites are Italian, Indian, Japanese, and
Korean. I'm a pretty adventurous eater, so there isn't a genre of
food that I rule out really. And I can eat spicier food than you. I
can pretty much guarantee that. Yes, that IS a dare... ;)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- a smartphone. I know, weak, but if I broke mine I would probably
replace it immediately.
- my journal
- my Strangers with Candy
- alone time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Snickers bars. Current events. Finding new music. What to do next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out. Or in. Half and half maybe.
I get the urge to get out and dance sometimes. Crowds and new
people can be a good thing. And who doesn't like drunken antics
every now and again? *smirk* I sure as hell do. I guess I've been
doing this less often lately though.
When I stay in I like watching movies/tv, listening to music,
surfing the internet, writing in my journal, reading, playing
or just talking over tea or wine (...or warm sake. Anyone? heh).
